Immersion Day 2

Tuesday 6 February saw the second Immersion Day of the year. The day was very successful with many outside providers coming in to school to work with the students, all of whom were off-timetable for the day attending sessions and workshops all over the school site. Below is a list of what activities each year group partook in;

  • Year 7s experienced higher education at universities
  • Year 8s learnt about health matters and their future career options
  • Year 9s were involved in Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development 
  • Year 10s spent spending the day doing all-things Romeo & Juliet
  • Year 11s completed cross-curricular skills in Maths and Science, some students were involved in English and Languages
  • Post 16 - Year 12 took part in a Young Driver Education Programme and Year 13 students were on a workshop carousel based on 'Life Post 18'


Miss Tyers, Achievement Leader for Post 16 and the organiser of the day, has thanked the staff and students for embracing the day, stating ‘I think it is extremely valuable for students to stop, reflect and gain perspective. Having the opportunity to interact with outside providers, with content and topics not usually covered is, I believe is essential.’
